Poor Clone of Bob had a pimple on his cheek. Well, actually, he had two side by side. Our dinner conversations are so wrong at times...Bob asked Clone of Bob if he had gotten bitten by a spider or something. Boo piped up and asked him if he was going to turn into Spider Man...Clone of Bob replied, "What, and shoot webs from my nose?"
This happened last year, but since this is my first Fly on the Wall post, I think I can get away with it: I'm a terrible mother at times...Clone of Bob smacked his elbow on something in the kitchen. He's writhing in pain on the floor and I'm laughing my rear end off. I told him he hit his funny bone...he replies, "That's why they call it the funny bone! Everyone laughs at you when you hit it!" I'll admit that I laughed even harder. Poor kid!
I think it's kind of funny how dependent we are on texting these days. I had my phone on silent the other day and totally forgot about it. It sat in my purse all day and I didn't care. Now, keep in mind that I have a house phone that rings loud and clear when you call it. My brother sent me 5 texts that day, each one wondering why I wasn't responding. He then decides to text both of my kids...hello!? You can't CALL my house? Anyway, when I finally responded to his text he texted back, "Um. Our phones die without our constant attention. Remember that. And don't feed them after midnight." One of his earlier texts said, "Really? Still nothing? Your cell phone is gonna walk out on you if you don't pay it some attention."
The puppy went through a bout of the runs. So, to give his digestive system a rest, I started feeding him rice with a little bit of chicken. Once his system started going back to normal, I started mixing his dog food into the rice and slowly switched him back over to it. He loved the rice and threw and absolute fit when he finally got a bowl of just his dog food. Bob, ever the clever one, took a cup and put a little bit of water in it and made some noise around the kitchen. Then he put the water over the pup's food and the little snot ate it up. He was tricked by this ploy because he thought Bob put something special in it.
